Hi all – Kate sadly passed away in July 2016 however i am continuing her legacy through #hellomynameis and will regularly upload blogs to here. Thank you all
Below is the biography that Kate wrote in 2013/4
I am a 32 year old final year Elderly Medicine Registrar working in Yorkshire in the UK. Nothing unusual about that really. But I am also a cancer patient, a terminally ill one with a very rare and aggressive form of sarcoma. On my blog I muse about current issues especially relating to end of life care, communication and patient centredness. I also write about my experiences as I approach the end of my life.
I have written 2 books, The Other Side and The Bright Side. We sell these with all profits being donated to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal in Leeds. See my website for more details – http://www.theothersidestory.co.uk
